there’s new funding scheme launched by Nesta’s Centre for Collective Intelligence Design. Nesta is awarding grants of up to £20,000 to public bodies, charities, research organisations, start-ups, and large firms with innovative ideas to help generate evidence about how collective intelligence can be designed and applied for social impact. The project should include using new digital technologies and methods for enabling collective intelligence at scale, e.g. through deliberation, observation, prediction or idea creation, etc. Making progress in how we understand, think and act together is critical to solving some of the most complex challenges of our times – from climate change to prosperity and wellbeing.
Selected projects will not only receive the funding, but can also ask for research support from staff at the Centre. This might include an advisory role to ensure rigour of experiments, or helping to disseminate findings.
For any questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for expression of interest is the 9th of November.
